A young mountain lion was captured on video last fall, putting the stalk on an Idaho hunter's deer decoy.

The hunter was perched in a tree stand several yards from his decoy, when he noticed movement off to his right. It was a mountain lion slowly creeping up on his deer decoy.  Unable or unwilling to shoot the predator, he did the next best thing, grabbed his video camera and began recording.

According to the video description, this happened in Idaho in November of 2017.

Watch as the young mountain lion looking for a big meal, pounces and then is confused by the whole situation when the decoy doesn't make a move.
